Our Leadership Team

Pastors Bill and Karen Murchison

Our Leadership Team is led by Bill  Murchison. Bill has faithfully served God in pastoral ministry for over thirty years. The Connection Church is Bill’s fourth church plant. Bill and Karen have also served in a number of other churches and ministries, including prison ministry and foster care.  In addition to helping out at the Connection Church, Karen is the Founder and Director of the International House of Prayer in Albuquerque. Bill and Karen have ten children and thirteen grandchildren.

We believe in the plurality of leaders, including both elders (pastors) and  deacons, and Bill serves as the team leader.  We believe in servant leadership, and in leading by example. The following people serve on the leadership team: Karen Murchison, Tom Swenson, Mike Behm, and James Wylie. Bill meets with the Leadership Team, to train and mentor them in teaching, preaching, caring for the flock, and managing the affairs of the church.
